Orbiting and Camera Views

This is a 'heads up' to you if you're working with Revit cameras. If you are doing multiple renderings of the same view I would highly recommend duplicating the camera view for each version. You should also make a duplicate if you plan on orbiting. If you orbit (shift-middle mouse roller-button) while in a camera view it is very difficult to get back to your original vantage point. Undo will not get you back.

Isn't that what rewind is for?

Yes, Rewind does exactly that. It's in the Steering Wheel, for those who don't use it much.
But I would still agree with Jay's point that it's often very helpful to duplicate camera views for various reasons. No harm in extra views. Time wasted changing settings over and over on a single view.
